Day 77

I woke up just as hubby was leaving for work. I haven’t been sleeping the best the last few nights, so it’s been much harder to get out of bed. I’m also missing out on an afternoon nap because I’m trying to fill my days with creative. I’m tired.

I spent the first hour of being awake with wifey on Discord. I can’t wait til she gets back here. Mornings are always easier when she is here. I still did my workout but it was a little later than normal and it was over before I even realised. I pushed through it about 4 minutes faster today.

Once I had e-tucked wifey into bed, I got about another day of happy list goals. One of my goals is to draw every day this week. This was a big ask, mainly because, I have no idea how to draw. I feel like I should be able to draw. I can see with my eyes, my brain can tell my hand what it sees, my hand should be able to do the job. That’s not really the case. I’m going to keep practising and stick to my 6 day drawing goal.

Today I tried drawing a vintage perfume bottle. I copied it from a photo I took at an Art Deco shop in Napier, New Zealand.

I also worked on a short story for 30 minutes. I still have no idea what the story is about but it seems to be unfolding nicely. It’s a bit dark and I’m not sure I’d ever show anyone but it’s writing practice.

Then, I spent a couple of hours singing. I’m trying to put together a list of songs to record to share. I’m going to make sure to get lots of practice in over the next couple of weeks before I try to record anything.

Finally I finished all the creative off with 30 minutes of French. I feel like I did better at French today. Words that were hard to remember yesterday, are easier today. Some, I still have no idea about.

There will be more of the same tomorrow.

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.
